Senate Democrat, of the Judiciary Committee, referred a letter regarding Supreme Justice nominee, Brett Kavanaugh to the FBI.
The contents of the letter have been carefully guarded by Sen. Dianne Feinstein, the ranking member on the Senate Judiciary Committee, as well as California Rep. Anna Eshoo, who at the beginning acquired the letter and shared it with Feinstein, according to sources familiar with the matter. However, whispers of what it incorporates have made the rounds throughout Capitol Hill over the last week.
The attention regarding it burst into the general public whilst The Intercept published a report about the rumors surrounding the letter on Wednesday.
“This revelation has been reported to the FBI for investigation. Sen. Dick Durbin advised BuzzFeed about the letter on Thursday.
In an announcement later Thursday, Feinstein confirmed that she had referred the letter to "federal investigative authorities."

BuzzFeed contacted the female believed to be the concern of the letter. She declined to comment. BuzzFeed information has not been capable of affirming the contents of the letter.
The lawyer, believed to be representing the female was seen leaving Capitol Hill Wednesday nigh quickly, after the Intercept story dropped and just as Judiciary Committee Democrats had been huddling in the Senate lobby. The lawyer, Debra Katz has not confirmed that she is representing the girl. She also declined to remark Wednesday, pronouncing “there’s nothing to say.”
When asked approximately the letter and the rumors surrounding its contents last week, Eshoo’s office stated in a declaration to BuzzFeed, “Our office does not talk casework.” They declined to comment in addition.
The chair of the committee, Republican Sen. Chuck Grassley, stated Thursday he did not have the letter and had no further information available beyond what he had already shared with the media.
The FBI did not respond to a request for further comment. A White residence spokesperson also did not want to offer a response.

Feinstein, the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee, announced that information regarding a possible past hidden crime by Brett Kavanaugh was supplied by a woman who wanted to remain anonymous, and declined to detail the letter’s contents — even to her annoyed fellow Dems.
However, two unclear reports from the New York Times and The Intercept included multiple resources, assuring the requisition for a legal quandary definitively spells out the sexually abusive actions of the 53-year-old Trump nominee.
“I have received information from an individual concerning the nomination of Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court,” Feinstein verbalized in a public announcement.
“That individual vigorously requested confidentiality, was reluctant to come forward or press the matter further, and I have venerated that decision. I have, however, referred the matter to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Director, Christopher Wray.”
The letter, filled with details of accusations of a decade's old possible occurrence, was delivered to the office of California Democratic Rep. Anna Eshoo, who assured it was handed over to Senator Diane Feinstein, this past summer. For an unknown reason, Feinstein waited until after the hearing to take action.
Initial reports this evening describe that a former high school classmate of Kavanaugh is alleging the Supreme Court candidate sexually assaulted her, making her the next publicized #MeToo victim of a Republican leader. The anonymous woman is being represented by lawyer Debra Katz, a founding partner of the firm Katz, Marshall & Banks, LLP, who has represented other #MeToo women.
A lawyer at Katz's firm, Joseph Abboud, said the firm would not comment on their client's accusations.
Unsurprisingly, the Trump White House released a tempestuous defense of Kavanaugh — blaming Senator Chuck Schumer with the following statement:
“Senator Schumer vowed to ‘oppose Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination with everything I have,’ and it appears he is delivering with this 11th hour attempt to delay his confirmation,” the statement said, in combination with a staunch defense of Kavanaugh, nominated by President Trump to replace the retiring Justice Anthony Kennedy.
The office of Senator Schumer shot back that the New York State Democratic Congressman “has not had access to the letter, but believes the Judiciary Committee is handling it appropriately.
